Re: omissions

I don't recall seeing anywhere in the manual any discussion of the
difference between using || and slashification.  I gather that the

should go -- probably in the section on the reader and external
syntax, with a brief mention in the early section on special

A description of how to add your own # characters for the reader and
~ codes for format should really be in there.  I don't know how to
do it, and it can't be THAT awful.

I hope the next edition will contain at least some of the omitted
sections, like readtables, a better discussion of the display I/O
system, the stepper, etc.  (This list is not in priority order.)
